Our 4th game, titled Awesome Upstander! for HealthTeacher is finally done and available on the iPad, iPhone, Android and Web.
Awesome Upstander is an anti-bully game aimed at kids aged 8-12. This title, in partnership with healthteacher.com was an excellent opportunity to create from start to finish. Awesome Upstander! had quite a few people behind the development who are experts in their field including those who worked on Nickelodeon shows like Dora the Explorer, Spongebob games and a well known Psychologist who’s appeared on shows like Oprah and Larry King to name only a few.
The object of the game is to get to the bully before he/she gets to the victim. You play as an Upstander (male or female) in a sidescrolling platformer collecting friends and other positive objects along the way before the time runs out.
Here’s a kid’s focus group in NY playing my game:
The game is out on the iPad, iPhone, Android, Web and soon Mac.
